Why am I stuck in this web of shame and mixed feelings?
Is this how God intended things to be?

God created sexuality and blessed it within the context of marriage. And He can help you break free of the binding web that keeps your mind captive. He can give you the strength to break free from the web, and He can replace harmful passions withhealthypassions.

Even if you feel that your mind and your heart have been too defiled, remember that God is a Redeemer—a Deliverer! There is no willing soul that He can’t make clean…

“You, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”

Psalm 116:8-9

Common Question about Sexual Desire vs. Lust

Question:
“At what point does the normal sexual desire turn into lust?”

Answer:
It is natural to be attracted to someone, but unnatural to sexualize a person. When your mind moves from normal attraction …to consuming passion to do a sexually-impure act, then you experience lust.

  • The moment you are tempted,  take control of your thoughts and your desires.
  •  Rein in your thoughts and pray, “Lord, I refuse to go down a road that leads to lust. I am committed to sexual purity in my mind as well as in my body.” The Bible says…

“Do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.”

Romans 6:12

Common Question about Nudity and Porn

Question:
“Since God created the human body as sexual, what’s wrong with nudity and pornography?”

Answer:
God ordained human sexuality for intimacy in marriage and for procreation, while pornography and the nudity found in it is designed simply to arouse indiscriminate sexual lust.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” 

Matthew 5:27-28
